School of innovation in San Sebastian
Can summer school be something you look forward to? This one can: the Young Foundation and MIK‘s International Summer School on Social Innovation is themed “Scaling up innovation – From ideas into action.” The event takes place July 28-30 in San Sebastian, Spain — a destination overlooking one of Europe’s finest beaches. Not exactly your local high school.
The Summer School will bring together a global community of people and organizations involved in social innovation to share skills, methods and insights on topics such as finance, design, managing incubators and public policy. Of the 100 or so participants, already a wide range of countries, from China to Brazil to Denmark, will be represented. There will be a mix of keynote speeches, themed workshops and working sessions, including presentations by:
- Geoff Mulgan, Young Foundation
- Robin Murray
- Katherine Fulton, The Monitor Institute, San Francisco
- Joeri Van Steenhoven, Kennisland, The Netherlands
- Josephine Green, Philips Design
